    I put a new fan shroud on today from Walck’s (I never had one before) and some new replacement amber turn signal lenses. The one retaining clip really popped out at me!

    Thank you sir! I’ve been eyeballing your thread envying your disc conversion. My 10” drums work pretty well but every time I come to an intersection I wonder if I’ll have brakes! I did replace my old master with a new single master and both rear wheel cylinders and I have no leaks! But still, discs and a dual master would make me feel better.

    (y) I’m not sure if they are Omix or Crown but whatever Walcks sells is what I used. They do seem of top quality though and they fit perfectly!

    Installed my Tightsteer tonight. I’m excited to take it for a spin because I did find some reviews on here but not a ton. I took it around the backyard and can tell right away it’s tighter. We’ll see!

    New fuel tank neck grommet, my old one was toast.

    Then I washed it. I have been using ArmorAll wash and Wax+Protect and I can’t recommend it enough! I washed my truck and my wife’s car in full sunlight and didn’t get any waterspots. It is seriously good stuff, highly recommend!

    In the 10 miles I drove tonight I can guarantee you my steering feels much better! I’m sure once I rebuild everything (knuckles, tie rods, kingpins, etc) it’ll be even better! But this little doodad helped a lot. Sorry I don’t have any before and after footage but it tracks straight with almost zero play and I’m not wandering all over the road. (y)

    This is easily the ECJ5 Jeep of the year.


    Unofficially (since we don't do that). :D

    Fuel Filters: Use WIX : They are German Made & are steel contained. The Fram plastic contained jobs are prone to cracking And / or even melting !
    ( Chinese crap). Try to use WIX , for all filters, IMHO. :cool:
